American Airlines has caved to the “woke” mob and is now investigating a 32-year veteran pilot for the non-crime thoughtcrime of criticizing his local school district’s embrace of radical critical race theory propaganda.

The airline was alerted to 62-year-old pilot Gut Midkiff’s thoughtcrimes by members of the Southlake Anti-Racism Coalition, a coalition of “woke” teens that’s been lobbying to introduce racial essentialist propaganda into the Carroll Independent School District.

In tweets posted late last week, the far-left coalition accused Midkiff of “harassment” and demanded his employer, American Airlines, intervene and discipline him, though it failed to provided any legitimate examples of harassment.


None of the tweets above show Midkiff — who apparently owns the Twitter account for “WiseGuyTalks” — harassing anybody. They merely show him expressing his disapproval for CRT propaganda and mocking those who choose to espouse such propaganda.

Because SARC’s members are reportedly mainly children, they feel as if they are entitled to protection from criticism. It’s a common attitude among the left.

Instead of ignoring the group’s unsubstantiated complaints, American Airlines swiftly bent the knee:

“We are troubled by the allegations made and have launched an investigation into the matter,” an airline representative said to The Dallas Morning News.

At issue is the Cultural Competence Action Plan, a proposal by Carroll ISD vehemently supported by the members of SARC.

“We need a comprehensive education that incorporates a critical pedagogy approach (including critical race theory), an accurate portrayal of history with a critical lens on racism past and present, and dynamic discussions on inherent privilege and effective allyship to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC),” SARC’s website explicitly states.

Midkiff and others in his community take grave issue with this plan.

“He and other Southlake residents, including the Southlake Families PAC, have said the plan is an attempt to introduce so-called critical race theory into the classroom,” according to the Morning News.

Notice how the left-wing paper describes CRT as “so-called” critical race theory.

Fortunately for Midkiff and his allies, a majority of his own community members feel similarly. Carrol ISD is the same school district where two candidates opposed to CRT propaganda won seats on the school board in a landslide election earlier this month:

Moreover, last week the GOP-led Texas House passed a bill to outlaw CRT propaganda in schools, much to the chagrin of the Morning News.

“The Texas House passed a bill Tuesday that supporters say is an effort to keep the theory, which identifies racism as a systemic problem, from being taught in schools. Educators are worried the legislation would have a chilling effect on classrooms and hamper efforts to encourage students to be effective citizens,” the paper complained.

Not included in the one-sided piece was any explanation of why so many Americans oppose CRT propaganda and the racial essentialism it promotes. The radical ideology divides people into groups (oppressors, victims) and then doles out rights and punishments based on those qualifications.

Writing two months ago for Hilldale College’s monthly newsletter, “Imprimis,” researcher Christopher Rufo cited a slew of recent examples to demonstrate the ideology’s insidiousness.

”What does critical race theory look like in practice? Last year, I authored a series of reports focused on critical race theory in the federal government. The FBI was holding workshops on intersectionality theory. The Department of Homeland Security was telling white employees they were committing ‘microinequities’ and had been ‘socialized into oppressor roles,'” he wrote

“The Treasury Department held a training session telling staff members that ‘virtually all white people contribute to racism’ and that they must convert ‘everyone in the federal government’ to the ideology of ‘antiracism.’ And the Sandia National Laboratories, which designs America’s nuclear arsenal, sent white male executives to a three-day reeducation camp, where they were told that ‘white male culture’ was analogous to the ‘KKK,’ ‘white supremacists,’ and ‘mass killings.'”

Children haven’t been spared from the ideology’s illiberalism. Last year one Nevada school that preaches CRT tried to brainwash a biracial boy, William Clark, into acknowledging that he’s apparently a privileged white male oppressor.

Yet to hear SARC’s members tell it, opposition to this ideology makes one an enemy of so-called “inclusion and diversity.”

The fact that American Airlines has, at least for the time being, sided with CRT proponents hasn’t been well-met by the public:
